Note 042
by Joachim C. Fest

42 Himmler's statements on the SS State of Burgundy appear in the English but not the German edition of Kersten's Memoirs. Here the text mentioned by Paetel in Die SS is taken as a basis. Besgen's book Der stille Befeh contains still other material than the German or English edition of Kersten's Memoirs. Alsace-Lorraine too played a significant part in the SS concept of the future, particularly as a settlement area; see Paul Kluke, 'Nationalsozialistische Europaideologie, VJHfZ, 1955, No. 3.

From Chapter 9, Heinrich Himmler , Part 2 of The Face Of The Third Reich by J.C. Fest -- See further Notes
